He’s a small-town single dad with a broken heart
She’s a big city lawyer who would rather face a jury than a toddler

It’s not like lion shifter Shelley Powell hates children. She just doesn’t know what to do with them… or anything that doesn’t already have a place in her seemingly well-ordered life. But her new mate starter-pack apparently comes with not only an active little boy but also a drooly dog… and an ex-wife who is everything she isn’t.

Bear shifter Dean James knows there’s more to the gorgeous lion shifter that waltzed into his auto shop than her perfect hair and stunning silver eyes. He can see past her fashionable facade straight to the hungry heart beneath and Dean knows that his family is just the right family to complete her.

Can he convince her that Green Valley, with its nosy neighbors and noisy kids, is the right place for a lonely city lioness?

Title:  Bearly Together
Series:  Green Valley Shifters #4
Author:  Zoe Chant
Published:  June 14, 2019
My Rating:  4.5 stars

We’ve met Shelley before, and it should be noted that first impressions aren’t always the correct ones and that certainly shines a truth in “Bearly Together” as Shelley and Dean discover that they are mates – and, on the surface, two shifters couldn’t be more different.  But… are they really?

Most of what you’d need to know can be found in the Cover Description.  What you won’t find there is the emotion that this story brings to readers as carefully hidden secrets are revealed that show Shelley and Dean in a more realistic, true light.  I enjoyed watching their walls come tumbling down as Shelley learns how to deal with children, and Dean finally lets go of the need to be everything to everyone except himself.  We get the chance to run into some book friends from previous stories – and sometimes big brothers should know to keep their big mouths shut around little kids.  Just sayin’

I had a blast with “Bearly Together”, but then I always do in the “Green Valley Shifters” series.  If you’re in the mood for an uncomfortable romance, to watch two people (actually four) learn to open their lives and hearts to each other and start a new life, some sexy sizzle, and an adorable pup and kids then you’ll want to pick this one up real soon.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
